Normally there is no adjustment on that cable, most of hood release problems are caused by, a lack of lubrication of the hood latch, misadjusted hood tension on the hood bumpers, or a stretched cable due to the above listed problems. Try holding the hood down as someone pulls the hood release, that might re-leave some of the tension on the latch and allow the hood to open so you can locate and fix the problem.
